Why is Delmarva fighting so hard to prevent Wind Power in Delaware ?

 

 Delmarva Power's Mega Lines

 

Take a close look at this map.

 

Dominion announced on Nov. 28, 2007, that it has filed an application with the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission for a license to build and operate a new nuclear reactor at its North Anna Power  that covers Virginia

 

Constellation Energy and its partner UniStar are hoping to construct a third reactor at Calvert Cliffs. The extensive approval process by state and federal regulatory agencies is expected to take two years.   That covers Maryland

 

AmerGen Energy LLC recently announced it will seek to extend the operating license of Oyster CreekNUCLEAR Generating Station by 20 years. Right over to Vineland

 

And then on to Salem …..With a 4th reactor in the planning stages.

 

We are not unique :

 

Progress Energy Florida narrows sites for future power lines

Tampa Bay Business Journal

Progress Energy Florida has unveiled plans for about 200 miles of potential new power lines in the state.

Construction would start in 2012 for the project to be in service by 2016, pending approval from the Florida Public Service Commission.

JEA eyes stake in Georgia nuclear power plant

Atlanta Business Chronicle

Jacksonville Electric Authority (JEA) is looking to enter a 20-year contract to buy nuclear power from a yet-to-be-built plant near Augusta , Ga.

 

With price tags ranging from $12 billion to $18 billion for a nuclear reactor that could produce 2,200 megawatts daily, JEA can only afford a partnership with a major utility, as opposed to building its own plant. More on these unholy partnerships’ later.

 

What Were They Thinking? Florida Power & Light Backs Off Wind Farm In Park Proposal

by John Laumer, Philadelphia on 03.20.08

Science & Technology (alternative energy)     See, they don’t like wind either !  (Where is the money?)

 

 

 

Does this begin to sound familiar?

 

The Co’s mantra

No Wind Power with it’s clean unlimited supply. The “Money” is in nukes with all its Government subsidies

. Subsidized fuel

,Protections in case of an accident  (under Price – Anderson)

 Waste disposal and the guardianship thereof (for a 100.000years) borne by the Government

 Construction work in Progress (CWIP) meaning YOU PAY  while we build even if we can never finish.

 

What a deal !!
